For those who missed Google Voice beta, Ribbit Mobile opens in beta

By Tim Conneally

November 3, 2009

Some of us missed the boat and never got in the Google Voice beta test group. With all the controversy the service stirred up among the media, the public, telecommunications companies, and the FCC, there’s a distinct possibility that Google Voice as we know it could end up in regulatory limbo after being politicized and thrown into the “net neutrality” conflict.

Today, a beta of an alternative has opened up: Ribbit Mobile from Ribbit, an independent British Telecom subsidiary often billed as “Silicon Valley’s first telephone company.”

Ribbit Challenges Google Voice to a VoIP Duel

By Bart Salisbury

November 3, 2009

It didn’t take long for the other technological shoe to drop. Ribbit has hopped out a beta for Ribbit Mobile, a direct VoIP challenge to Google Voice. And one, by the looks of it, that just might fuel a VoIP arms race.

Analysis: Impressive Ribbit Mobile Launch – BT Steps Beyond The Network

By Tom Foremski

November 3. 2009

Ribbit is a platform…

Last week I met with Ribbit CEO Ted Griggs, Don Thorson CMO, and Crick Waters EVP Strategy and Business Development.

It might seem that Ribbit is a developer of telephony applications such as Ribbit Mobile but that’s not the case. Ribbitenables applications like Ribbit Mobile.

It has built a technology platform that merges voice and data telecommunications networks over the Internet using a software switch approach. Developers use its APIs to create a wide diversity of telephony services and to integrate them into other applications.

“Ribbit Mobile is a complex service, but yes, a third-party developer could have created it,” said Crick Waters, EVP Strategy and Business Development.

Ribbit Mobile Launches to Challenge Google Voice, VoxOx

November 3, 2009

British Telecom’s Ribbit cloud computing division brought its Web phone application to the mobile device market Nov. 3 in the form of Ribbit Mobile, which lets users manage calls and messages to mobile phones from their computers.

If that thrust sounds like services such as Google Voice or VoxOx, that’s because it is similar. Ribbit Mobile rings mobile devices from computers, route mobile calls to other phones and lets users answer their mobile calls on the Internet, all with a few mouse clicks from Ribbit’s phone-like touch-button interface on the desktop.

BT’s Ribbit takes platform show mobile

By Rich Karpinski
November 3, 2009

A lot has happened since Ribbit emerged almost two years ago with the self-stated goal (or threat) of being “Silicon Valley’s Telephone Company”: Voice platform plays have come, gone and come back into vogue; the start-up was gobbled up by BT; and the wireless world has exploded with the emergence of mobile apps.

Which is a long way of saying that Ribbit was probably slightly ahead of its time.

The company is trying to make up for that with the launch today of Ribbit Mobile, which leverages the company’s core software platform, network infrastructure and application programming interfaces (APIs) to deliver an advanced call management service that combines all of a user’s phones, a Web interface and mobile applications (running initially on the iPhone and BlackBerry, pending app store approvals).

Ribbit offers a fuller Google Voice-like service

“Ribbit, the BT subsidiary that originally billed itself as Silicon Valley’s first telephone company, is offering a full mobile-web combination service that treads along some of the same ground as Google Voice.”

Ryan discusses many of Ribbit Mobile’s functionality and does note that the service will likely not be free. We are pleased that he directs readers to the Ribbit landing page where they can apply for the service. Also, the article has been picked up in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer Tech Chronicles blog.

Ribbit Launches Google Voice Challenger

It is hard to look at Ribbit Mobile without comparing it to Google Voice. Just like Google Voice, Ribbit gives users a new phone number or they can use call forwarding to transfer calls from their mobile phones to Ribbit’s platform. Ribbit Mobile also has quite a few features that Google doesn’t offer, including the ability to make calls from within the browser.

Ribbit Mobile No Google Voice Clone

By Bob Poe

November 3, 2009

The most common reaction to the newly introduced Ribbit Mobile service is that it’s a Google Voice competitor. In some ways that’s true, but there are significant differences between the two. The main one is that Ribbit Mobile makes one’s existing mobile number the main number, while Google Voice hangs all its services on a new number it provides. For most users, one approach will be clearly better than the other.

BT is taking names for a beta trial of the first consumer service to come out of its $105 million purchase in 2008 ofSilicon Valley cloud computing venture, Ribbit: a web-based system to manage calls, messages and phones

Comment: BT will undoubtedly be wanting to test the Ribbit system out rigorously before launching it on the public and — presumably — charging money. It is only too well aware of the recent case of SpinVox, whose promises that its voice-to-text offering are almost entirely automatic have failed to convince many

Over the past year, Ribbit, a web-based service that provides a new way to manage calls, messages and phones, has had a flurry of activity, including their acquisition by British Telecom and most recently, their integration of several gadgets with Google Wave allowing voice calls, phone conferencing, text messaging and voicemail transcription. Today, Ribbit is at it again, this time with the launch of Ribbit Mobile — a free cloud-based service that enables users to merge multiple phones, route mobile calls to other phones and answer their mobile calls on the Internet.

Ribbit Launches Mobile Version

By Richard Martin

November 3, 2009

Upping the stakes in the mobile call-management sector, IP telephony provider Ribbit today said it is launching Ribbit Mobile, a versatile Web-based platform for mobile calls and messaging that gives users access to their mobile phone from a variety of devices and screens.

Offering many of the same features as such Web-based services as Google Voice and VoxOx, Ribbit Mobile has one important benefit: It does not require users to change numbers. (Google last week said it will offer a “Google Voice lite” edition that allows users to use their existing mobile numbers while giving up certain features.) Nor does it require a software download: Ribbit, a subsidiary of BT Group (BT), says the cloud-based service can be activated on any mobile device in less than five minutes.

Ribbit Introduces a Google Voice Competitor

By Harry McCracken

November 3, 2009

VoIP company Ribbit is girding itself to compete with Google Voice, with a new service that’s quite similar in some ways and quite different in others.

Like Google Voice, Ribbit Mobile is a sort of virtual receptionist: It can ring multiple phones at once, gives you Web-based access to voicemail, and can transcribe messages into text and alert you via e-mail or SMS. But Ribbit works with the phone number you already have (Google Voice recently introduced a no-new-number option, but it’s missing lots of features).
